||100% Barbera (Vines planted in 1999)
||Orange, NSW, Australia
||Lovely deep garnet colour with youthful purple hue.
||Vibrant dark berry aromas with herb, forest floor and a
pleasant touch of meatiness adding complexity.
||Medium bodied and elegant, with herb, dark berry and earthen
flavours. There is a pleasant grip of balanced tannin on the long
finish, with the oak adding complexity and character. This will
integrate further with time in the bottle.
Fermented in open fermenters with 20% left as whole berries and pumped over twice daily to increase colour and flavour. Maturation was in French oak puncheons for 12 months (20% new oak).
PEAK DRINKING: Enjoy now and over the next six years
FOOD MATCHES: Perfect with antipasto or rare roast lamb
